    Getting started with MySQL

    Hi.

    I'm completely new to MySQL. My host has MySQL installed and i'd like to experiment with using it but don't know how to get started. I know i have to create a table and put some data in it but i don't know how to connect to the server or database (if that's what i have to do?!?)

    Where would i go to get started?

    i suggest reading kevin yank's articles, dealing with php and mysql. http://www.sitepoint.com/article/php...1-installation

    he'll help you get started. also check out this graphical interface for mysql http://www.mysql.com/products/administrator/ read the documentation, for it. very easy to use once you've gotten the hang of it.
    i love php
